Realm Privacy

Your information is your information

  1. You have complete control over who can see your contact and personal information
  2. Contact information is never public or searchable on the Internet. Any information you elect to make visible to your church family is always protected behind a login.
  3. Authorized staff will always have access to your profile information.
  4. You and certain authorized staff may update your profile information. For safety reasons, sharing contact and personal information for children under 18 is limited.
  5. Parents determine whether or not to display their child’s name in the church directory.
  6. Children under 13 may not participate and will not be able to sign in.

What People May See
By default, the viewing of your contact and personal information is limited to members of groups you are in, group leaders, and staff members. If you choose to, however, you can make your information visible to the entire church. It’s like opting into a church directory. But if you prefer to be more private, you can customize how people see specific information.

Privacy Settings
For a quick video review about how to adjust Privacy Settings in Realm:

Everyone—Like a church directory listing, everyone in our church will be able to see whatever profile information is marked as visible to everyone.

My Groups + Group Leaders + Church Staff—This setting means information will only be shared with the people you are involved with at church. This is the default setting.

Group Leaders + Church Staff—You would use this setting if you wanted to keep some profile information hidden from anyone who is not a group leader or on staff.

Church Staff Only—This setting effectively removes you from the church directory. Your information will only be available to authorized church staff.**

Custom Privacy—Choose different privacy levels for specific contact fields and personal information. You can do this in two places: when you edit your profile information or when you manage your privacy settings.

**While you can hide the majority of your information from most of your church, you should know that, regardless of your settings, contact data will still be visible to certain members of our church staff.

Family Privacy
A family member with a primary position such as “Head” or & “Spouse”, “Primary” or “Secondary” contact, can change privacy settings for other members of the family and opt family members into the church directory.

Birthdays are required for children (as a means to prohibit access), but it’s up to you if you want to share the birthday with your church family.
